'WORKING WITH...' OXFORD CERAMICS GALLERY STAND AT COLLECT 2018 / CURATED IN COLLABORATION WITH AMANDA GAME / 22 - 25 FEBRUARY 2018
We are delighted to present ‘Working with’ as our first stand for Collect Art Fair.
We have taken the theme of ‘Collaboration’ and ‘Working With’ as a way of drawing together beautiful, important work by artists in different traditions and across generations whose works we admire and show regularly in Oxford. There is a central focus on ceramics but shown alongside furniture, metalwork and textiles to give context and to highlight new relationships and directions being explored by the Oxford Ceramics Gallery. Selected works will offer insight into the different ways artists ‘work with’ materials; how makers can work with, and re-imagine, both ideas and traditions; how they work with time, memory; and of course, how they work with others, and with the experience of being human. This concept of ‘working with’ also feels important for our times. Critically all exhibitors are, in our view, important contemporary contributors to the artistic and intellectual traditions of hands-on studio experimentation and production.
